Study the New Zealand Certificate in Real Estate with Toi Ohomai.

No two days are the same with a career in real estate. This fast-paced industry is constantly evolving, and offers a career which is dynamic and flexible.

Ashlyn McGregor studied the New Zealand Certificate in Real Estate at Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology and is now enjoying working in this sought-after industry.

"I have always been interested in houses and architectural and interior design, so it seemed like a natural career choice."

Ashlyn started her studies in February 2020 but was one of the many students whose courses were disrupted by the initial COVID-19 lockdown. Despite all the disruptions Ashlyn, recommends studying through Toi Ohomai.

“It was a very well-run programme, the on-line format was organised and easy to follow and the tutors were responsive, supportive and knowledgeable".

Navigating the legal framework around real estate, marketing strategies and techniques for listing and selling can be daunting, but Ashlyn says the course prepared her well for the real estate industry.

"I found the skills I gained to do an appraisal helpful. I can fall back on my study notes to refresh my understanding on certain aspects of real estate.

“For the first six months I have continued to do professional development as it is a requirement within my organisation, which I have found extremely useful. However, my studies with Toi Ohomai provided me with a solid foundation."

A career in real estate offers huge variety, from liaising with both purchasers and vendors, arranging viewings, writing newsletters and matching properties with people.

At Toi Ohomai you can study the New Zealand Certificate in Real Estate fully online, learning about the legal framework, marketing strategies and listing and selling property.

You’ll cover everything, from land ownership to property appraisals, establishing a presence in the market, methods of sale, and real estate transactions through to settlement.

There’s both full-time and part-time options making this a great option for you to study while still working. The course offers real-time, online tutorials giving you the opportunity to learn and ask questions as they arise. You'll develop written and oral communication skills essential to success as a real estate professional.

You could complete the course by the end of the year and embark on your new career in 2023.

Ashlyn says real estate, like other industries, has challenges but if agents are self-motivated, flexible, adaptable, tenacious but friendly this will help them in their success.

"It is not a five day a week 9am-5pm job, but it is flexible, stimulating and always changing. You are continually learning, which is an aspect of the job that I enjoy."
